Home » Spec sheet explained

The purpose of this page is to explain what are the terms used in all of this website and what are the different specifications meaning. They are provided with an example.

The first section explains the summary, which is self-explanatory.
Then, the second section explains the data sheet/specification sheet.

The tabs are present in order to have the exact specifications regarding the year, when it is available.
Some pages may show only one tab with a year span since there are very few if no different specifications for the models during the years it has been produced.
There may be additional tab for the same year as pictured on this page in order to have all the variations specifications for the model. For example, the Nissan Skyline, depending on the year, had have up to 17 variations if my memory serves right…

You can also check the lexical of the abreviations used here, at the bottom of this page : Lexical

This present page serves as a "glossary" in fact.
